Highlights

 

Experience the vast wilds of Western Australia, from its rugged Outback to its picturesque coastlines, on this 17 day Western Wonderland tour with Air New Zealand flights.

Your discovery of Western Australia begins in Perth, the most isolated state capital city in the world, and continues into the Golden Outback to unearth the gems of Kalgoorlie and Esperance. On these days, you’ll be swept away by the sight of Wave Rock, a truly striking rock formation, and have the chance to spot kangaroos lazing on the beach at Lucky Bay near Esperance. Follow the South West coast to Albany and learn about its association with the ANZAC legacy, and then cheers to the time you spend in Margaret River, where you move between impressive caves, acclaimed vineyards and boutique food producers. 

Wander between vendors and stalls at the colourful Fremantle Markets and take a step back in time with a lesson on convict history at Fremantle Prison. Venture northwards along the Coral Coast to Geraldton and stop to admire the other-worldly sight of the Pinnacles, a curious series of limestone formations in the desert. Try your luck spotting frolicking dolphins in the waters off Monkey Mia or simply soak up the beauty of the region’s stretches of white-sand beaches and azure-hued ocean, and head into Kalbarri National Park to gaze over the landscape at Murchison River Gorge before returning to Perth.
